Dierks Bentley to Bite the Big Apple

Country music has had a crush on New York City for a decade or so now. Let’s not forget that the Country Music Association Awards show has been held outside Nashville only once, and it was in Manhattan. The CMA also has started a songwriters’ series up there.

And now, Dierks Bentley’s gonna take that city by storm! Or at least by bluegrass. He’s gonna play four nights in a row up there, starting Oct. 18, when he’ll do his country hits at the Bowery Ballroom. The next night, he plays a bluegrass show with the Del McCoury Band, the night after that, a songwriters’ show and, finally, a gig with the Punch Brothers.

“Getting the opportunity to be in New York in the fall, playing with my heroes and my friends is really exciting,” Dierks said in a press release. “It’s a cool way for me to take everything we’ve done this year and pick it apart and really focus on each different element of the music for an entire night.”

Tix will be available on his website and through the individual venues, and Sirius/XM stations The Highway and Bluegrass Junction will stream the shows live.
